Brand & Martinez for September 11, 2012

Today marks the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Richard Ben-Viniste, who served on the 9/11 commission, tells us about newly discovered briefing memos which show the CIA were worried their warnings were not taken seriously before the attacks. Then, we begin a new series on the movie trailer industry, and author Maria Semple is here, author of the satirical "Where'd you go Bernadette?" Are academic standards best for schoolchildren? Comedy writer Lew Schneider talks about the trauma of taking his kid to college, literary critic David Kipen evaluates the Man Booker Prize finalists and for New Music Tuesday, a review of new Latin alternative music, including Helado Negro, Astro and DJ Javier Estrada.
